Machinima

How They Got Game Project (Stanford Humanities Lab)

The Machinima Archive is dedicated to the academic investigation and historical preservation of the emerging art form known as machinima. Machinima is filmmaking within real-time, 3D virtual environments, often appropriated from existing video game engines. High-quality new machinima of all kinds are regularly added to the archive for your enjoyment.

The Machinima Archive is a collaborative effort of the Internet Archive, the How They Got Game research project at Stanford University, the Academy of Machinima Arts and Sciences, and Machinima.com.

A "music-video" styled film, set to the tune of Les Miserables' "One Day More", filmed in Myriad Islands. This is my favorite song from that show, so I hope you'll like it too. Thanks to illspirit and the rest of the Myriad crew for giving me a NEW location to film in, and of course the writers of Les Miserables, from creating the best Broadway show in the world. :) For more information on the total conversion community project "Myriad Islands", please visit...
